Disney are celebrating their first Christmas in July event at Disney Springs?  WHAT!!!  Christmas in July?  Yes, you read that correct!

What Is Christmas In July

Christmas in July is a celebration in which people throw parties and generally celebrate Christmas time in the summer months.  It is thought to originate from Europe, but this isn’t confirmed.  What we do know is that it started in the 1980’s so it is a relatively new celebration!

Christmas in July, however, does not replace the real Christmas in December in any part of the world!

When will Disney Celebrate

July 15th through 30th

 

What Can You Expect

Summer Santa

Did you ever want to meet Santa in Summer?    Well now you can and Disney promises he is a lot more lightly dressed and with more energy than at Christmas time.  Which isn’t really surprising considering his work load the poor guy has in the winter months.  This is a great opportunity for guests to get a great picture of Santa in his beach wear!

Meet summer Santa in the Disney Days of 1:00 – 10:00 p.m. daily

Food Offerings

Guests can pick up some Christmas traditional sweet treats which aren’t usually available at this time of year.  Treats include:

  • Seasonal Caramel Apples – Candy Cauldron
  • Santa Crispy Treats – Candy Cauldron
  • Peppermint Bark – Goofy’s Candy Company and Candy Cauldron
  • Chocolate Enrobed Stollen Bread – The Ganachery
  • Seasonal Macaroons – Amorette’s Patissere
  • Gingerbread – Amorette’s Patissere
  • Gingerbread Crepe – Aristocrepes
  • Peppermint Mocha – Starbucks
  • Snowflake Margarita – Dockside Margaritas (my favorite Christmas treat)

We love the fact that guests who aren’t visiting over the festive season get to purchase these treats to take home and enjoy at Christmas.  Or better still an opportunity to purchase a unique gift.
